Sore calf muscles

What is wrong with me? I woke up a couple of days ago and my calf muscles hurt like I've worked out. It worries me more than it hurts me. Should I tell my doctor? Is this something serious? Kind of freakin me out...

By all means talk to ur doc about it if ur worried but it's pretty common one more great part of pregnancy I was having em where they kept me up all night for 4 nights last week. Try walking light exercise and stretching. N make sure u stay well hydrated

I get cramps in my calves in my sleep which causes sore calf muscles. Try eating more potassium enriched foods such as bananas, spinach, or kale. It will help a little. But from what my doc tells me it's pretty common.
